General Lord William Paulet, K.C.B.


.A good carte de visite by J Harris of Portsea. Paulet had served in the Crimea as Adjutant General to the Cavalry Division where he was awarded the medal with four clasps and a CB. He became a Major General in 1858 and was advanced to Lt General in 1867. He served in the 68th Foot [the Durham Light Infantry] and became Colonel of the Regiment in 1864. The general is shown full length and wears a frock coat the very wide medal ribbons fashionable in the Crimean period, and carries a mameluke pattern sword. Lord William was the fourth son of the 13th Marquess of Winchester.
